May Club Q Inspiration with Alicia

Hello Quick Quotes readers, Alicia posting today. I created a layout using up some more of the May Club Q pieces. 

 I just loved the die cut photo frame. I wanted to use some really pretty pictures and Spring Grove is the prettiest place I know! It is just minutes from my home and I often go bike riding and take pictures as was the case on this day.


Here are some details of the title and flowers. I used red lined tape to adhere the title to the ribbon. I find it is the best adhesive for ribbon.


A helpful hint I discovered is to use a 5x7 print to fill more than one frame.  I love the effect.

Wedding Gift Inspiration

Hello and welcome!  Susie here today sharing a wedding gift I created featuring the Farmhouse Collection.


One of my favorite things about papercrafting is being able to create personalized gifts for the special people in my life.

A couple of weeks ago I attended a beautiful wedding and I decided to create a framed layout as a gift. I started with Farmhouse 101 as the background and added 1/8" strips every 3 inches horizontally and vertically to create a grid.


I cut 3" squares from Farmhouse 101 and 104 and added them to the page.

I had some tags that were cut from Farmhouse 101 that are approximately 2-1/3" squares.  I inked the edges with Sky Blue PowderPuff Ink and then placed them under vellum quotes with a wedding theme.  I marked the edges with a pencil, trimmed them out, and added a pearl brad before I adhered them at different spots around the layout.

 
I added pictures and mixed in a variety of embellishments. Here I used  a chipboard word, wood veneer hearts and a die cut arrow.


I stamped the word strips in Sky Blue ink and popped them up with 3D Foam adhesive.  The dog tagged shaped charm reads "Live Love Laugh".


I used fancy pearl bling to frame a small photo of the bride and groom arriving to the reception in a horse drawn carriage!

 
I die cut a fancy heart and backed it with a piece of cardstock I had heat embossed with Platinum. There is more fancy pearl bling surrounding the vellum at the bottom of the page.

 
When you can't find exactly the right words, check out the wonderful selection of vellums from Quick Quotes!  The ones I chose are specific to love and weddings, but they are available in a wide variety of themes.

Thinking of You with Martha

Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you a card that I made using the 49 of Shades of Gray 105 paper, one of my favorites flowers of the season, combined with Chiffon 101.

LOS PAPELES PARA DECORAR 

 Creating this card was very simple.
  1. Create the base of the card using Mossy Meadow Card Stock. The size is 4-1/4" x 11" with score in 5-1/2".
  2. Cut the second layer using 49 of Shades of Gray 105 paper. The size is 3-3/4"x 5-1/2".
  3. Cut a rectangle using a stitched framelit using the Chiffon 101 paper
  4. Cut a square inside of the rectangle to simulate a photo frame. For this purpose you can use a framelit too.
  5. Cut a butterfly using the Chiffon 101 paper and a die cut or punch. In my model I used a Swirl butterfly from DieNamites.
  6. Stamp a sentiment on the lower part of the photo frame using Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalk Ink. I used a sentiment from the stamp set Hugs & Smiles of Joy Clair.
  7. Tie a button with a few loops of Coral Baker's Twine around of the photo frame.
  8. Paste the photo frame over the decorated card base using stampin dimensionals or double sided foam tape.
  9. Paste the butterfly using stampin dimensionals or double sided foam tape.

A Dream with Rhonda

Happy Thursday to you, it's Rhonda here to host the blog for you today.

I have a card to share with you today which uses our accent stripe pattern paper (Farmhouse 106) as the base for my card. This paper has such a nice variety of stripes and makes it look like you've created multiple layers, but you really haven't.


Next, I layered Farmhouse 102, then a simple one inch strip of the Farmhouse 103 centered on my second layer in between the blue background design. Then, I added my larger tag and layered my sentiment Dream Tag to the center. A few scalloped accents help to anchor the sentiment.


To complete the card, I've added a previous Club Q flower that I inked lightly with Sky Blue. The leaves I cut free hand and inked with Light Moss. The pearl spray I tacked down with a few micro glue dots on the end pearls to keep them in place.

May Club Q with Alicia!

Hello Quick Quotes readers! Alicia blogging today with my take on the May Club Q Kits. 

My method when I get the latest Club Q offering is to pull everything out and mix it up. Lots of goodies are cut to match so they will obviously go together but this allows me to mix up papers and embellishments. With that said, the hexagon cuts are adorable but obviously made for this layout. 

I tried to switch up papers, pictures, journaling and chipboard cuts. The pictures are of a very recent underground tour I took in April. I thought that with the subject matter and number of pics I took this layout would be perfect!


The double page pictures are not conducive to showing the details, so I have a picture of each page separately as well. I used Sky Blue PowderPuff Chalking Ink to ink up the chipboard pieces.  I inked several outer cuts and one inside. 


I really liked my layered ribbon corner with a sentiment popped up in the bottom corner and I extended one ribbon across both pages.


Some close ups of my embellishments:



Project #2:  As soon as I spied this project in the bag, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!  I used my niece's recent senior pics. I love this photo shoot and the pics go great with these papers.  I think she will enjoy hanging this piece on the wall.

I used ribbons instead of the rings to connect my wall hanging and flipped the paper around to suit my needs. As I also combine the contents of all the kits, the particular elements may or may not have been intended with this project.  Since everything is of similar papers it mixes and matches like a charm!

May Club Q Inspiration with Connie

Hi, Connie here to share with you what I created using the May Club Q Kit. This is a fun one! If you love hexagons, the color orange, flowers, strips, it is all in this kit.  I was able to create two scrapbook pages and one card.  
 
The first page...
 
I started laying out the hexagons to see what kind of pattern or design I could create.

 
The kit comes with chipboard shapes also. I inked those with Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalk Inks along with shading the edges of the shapes with different colors of PowderPuff Chalk inks.


Flowers and ribbon together make a cute garden for a page. I added cardstock, to the pages from my personal stash.
 
The second page...

Still just creating with the hexagons and Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalk Inks. The bright buttons are also included in the May Club Q Kit.


I was able to create one card from the May Club Q Kit scraps.
